There is a huge difference between diluting at 10:1 (or even 15:1 like some are suggesting) and and spraying it onto the panel as directed and then distributing with a damp towel prior to drying. This will more thoroughly distribute the product (the full product, not a heavily diluted version of it) when a forceful stream of water is unavailable. Again, do NOT saturate the panel with the product. You just don't need to as this stuff spreads like crazy. Trust us on this - the formula is totally different than anything you've ever encountered before.

    So, for my hard water situation, instead of diluting it with distilled water and using it in a mist and dry fashion, I would spray it undiluted and use a damp towel to spread....and then use another towel to dry? Sounds like a repeat of the foundation step to me, which is OK I guess. I really do not want to rinse with a strong spray of my hard water just to spread the product. or, maybe this product just doesn't work in my situation. Any additional advice?

    The main reason to buy this product is for the ease of application. Spray and rinse.

    If you do not want to spray and rinse I'd use a different product.

    Why not just use Ultimate Fast Finish instead?

    I could and do...however the Ceramic Hybrid Wax seems much tougher and lasts longer. If that is not the case, please advise.

    HCW is not tougher or more durable than UFF. Better water beading/hydrophobia, yes. Meguiars has said it can have equal durability IF applied correctly after paint is properly prepped.

    I just got some of the HCW and was going to clay and polish my car. Can I use the HCW after I polish or should I wax first with the mirror glaze 26 I usually use?

    You can use it after polishing.

    1 - HCW will not stain trim, provided you don't allow it to dry or something.
    2 - Yes, it is recommended to wash your hands after use.
    3 - Technically Hybrid Ceramic Wax has more durability. We recommend for best results to use Hybrid Ceramic Wax in addition to your favorite liquid or paste wax/sealant, like Ultimate Liquid Wax. HCW will not give the gloss that a Ultimate Liquid Wax can. It mainly focuses on protection. Although, if one would like, they can use HCW as their main source of protection, but again, for best results, we recommend using it in addition to standard liquid/paste base coat.

    Thanks for the answers Nick.

    It's been 7 weeks since I first applied HCW and it held up very nicely. I have been rinsing my car with a hose once a week and the dirt comes right off. It hasn't rained much recently so I only drove in the rain about 2 times but it was still pretty clean afterwards, there was just some dirt on the side of the back bumper near the tires. Also, it did well against bird droppings which I usually get about twice a week. When I hosed off the bird droppings, most of the time it comes right off. I then sometimes use Ultimate Wash & Wax Anywhere if necessary.

    I washed my car today for the first time since applying HCW and it was very easy to wash. I then applied 2 coats of HCW, first spraying it onto the paint and spreading it with a MF towel and secondly just spraying it onto the paint and rinsing. I am very happy with HCW and would give it a 10/10. I have been using ULW to protect the paint and will now alternate between using ULW and HCW each time I wash my car. I will have to pay more attention next time I use ULW but it seems like HCW does a better job with keeping dirt off the paint while ULW gives the paint a better shine. Longevity seems about the same.

    Also, I've been interested what other people think of HCW. I have looked at reviews here, on other websites and on Youtube. It seems like some people have their mind made up before even trying it and do not want to believe you can spray it onto a wet car and just rinse it off.

    Thank you for taking the time to update us. Happy to hear you are enjoying product. I agree with you, the self cleaning ability of Hybrid Ceramic Wax is great.
